This is last week’s tea of the week – a retro Monday reblend. I cold brewed it overnight and it’s quite good cold-brewed. I think I might like it a bit better hot brewed if for no other reason than I get more of the maltiness from the Assam and I like how that plays with the rootbeer and butterscotch-y notes.
I sipped on this with dinner tonight – I had hot wings with bleu cheese and I noticed that I picked up on more of the licorice root flavor when I drank this with this particular food. I found it interesting. After I finished eating, I had another glass of the tea and I didn’t get so much of the licorice then so I do believe that either the spiciness of the wings, the tangy quality of the bleu cheese or perhaps the creaminess of it brought out the licorice.
Anyway – it’s good cold-brewed – very refreshing!
